    I feel honored and excited to announce that SBMP’s second E-Newsletter is all set to publish online. This is our venture to collect the plethora major happening of polytechnic and encapsulate them in the form of E- Newsletter. E–newsletter is the result of combined requirements of NBA certification, Digital India Initiative and our Go Green Policy. We at SBMP ensure the active participation of students in various curricular and extra –curricular activities in and outside the institute. I appeal students and visitors to spare some moments to read to

I hope along with Sagar Tarang, in long run our e- Newsletter will create its unique place among the minds of readers. On this occasion, I take this opportunity to appreciate the entire editorial team and especially students members, for their efforts to make things happen.

    With warm regards

    Prof. Umesh Kantute

    “Imagineers,” Dr. Hanson aspired to create genius

    machines that are smarter than humans and can

    learn creativity, empathy and compassion—three

    distinctively human traits Hanson believes must be

    developed alongside and integrated with artificial

    intelligence for robots to solve world

    Problems too complex for humans to solve


    Sophia is Hanson Robotics’ latest and most

    advanced robot. She has also become a media

    darling, having given numerous interviews to

    multiple media outlets, sang in a concert, and even

    graced the cover of one of the top fashion

    magazines. One of her interviews has generated

    billions of views and social media interactions. She

    has also shown her potential in business, having met

    face-to-face with key decision makers across

    industries including banking, insurance, auto

    manufacturing, property development, media and

    entertainment. In addition, she has appeared onstage

    as a panel member and presenter in high-level

    conferences, covering how robotics and artificial

    intelligence will become a prevalent part of people


    Sophia is an evolving genius machine. Her

    incredible human likeness, expressiveness, and

    remarkable story as an awakening robot .Over time,

    her increasing intelligence and remarkable story
